(1) Between G 5210 and G 5220
The space between G 5210 and G 5220 and in front of offering room G 5110 is piled with a confusion of broken stones, stone blocks, dirt and sand. In this mass area number of fragments of relief all apparently from G 5110, and several wooden mallets [ILLUSTRATION] all decayed. This mass is work of the stone thieves who stripped mastaba G 5110 of its outer casing.
Under the hard debris in the half west of the inclined plane, there are the foundations of several walls - plan not clear - a destroyed mastaba.
G 5211, G 5221
The small rubble mastaba G 5211 has a large pit (A). In this near bottom was the head of the granite scribe (Khnum-ba-ef) found in two pieces in G 5221 A (on the other side of G 5220). Also small fragments of alabaster statuettes.
The mass of big blocks checked the pace of the work considerably. Many of them had to be broken up.
